Motorist can reclaim cost of hire car after accident
Court of Appeal
“A claimant whose car had been damaged by the defendant’s negligence could recover the reasonable cost of a replacement while his own car was being repaired even though the cost of that hire had been paid directly to the hire company by the claimant’s own insurers rather than by the claimant himself.”
